World – At UN, Gaddafi drops K-bomb

Chidanand Rajghatta

WASHINGTON: Libya’s maverick leader Muammar Gaddafi tossed a minor diplomatic grenade at New Delhi from the United Nations podium, saying Kashmir
should be an independent buffer state between India and Pakistan.

In an exhausting 90-minute speech Gaddafi spoke about the political and diplomatic history of the world in the last half century in his first ever appearance at the UN.

Most of Gaddafi’s rant was aimed at US and the western world, although he did not spare others, including the UN Security Council. At one point, he even blamed India and Japan for robbing Somalia of its fishing wealth, forcing Somalis to take up piracy.

Gaddafi reeled off the various excesses of the big powers, calling for reform of the security council. “It should not be called the Security Council, it should be called the ‘terror council’,” he said.
